Solis was recalled by the Nationals on Friday, Jamal Collier of reports.

The 30-year-old will take the bullpen spot previously occupied by Ryan Madson, who was sent to the Dodgers, but he'll presumably be working in a lower-leverage role. Solis has a 5.24 ERA in 34.1 innings with the Nationals this season. His solid 24.8 percent strikeout rate more or less cancels out an unimpressive 10.1 percent walk rate, leading to a palatable 4.38 FIP, but he's unlikely to be anywhere near the closer conversation.
